Beginning in the field 31 years ago, Sheriff Dalbec spoke about the good and difficult times in his decades long career - saying in part, "law enforcement is a calling, it is certainly not a profession for everyone, but I cannot imagine doing anything else. I have made great, long lasting friendships with many people, and for that I am forever grateful."
